What is in Season: August 2018

We often get the questions “what is in season?” and “what is in bloom at the garden?” Well, here is your answer! August brought us lots of yummy summer fruits, vegetables, and flowers! Here is a sample from the garden.

Heirloom and cherry tomatoes

There is nothing better than a fresh tomato or sweet pepper straight from the field.

Sweet yellow, orange, and red peppers

With all the rain we had this August, there were a few early shiitake mushrooms from our logs

We love working with our farm to table restaurant Irregardless Cafe. By working every week to create local and fresh recipes we had some excellent specials featuring our produce this month.

Fried okra

Eggplant Parmesan

We also had lots of sweet figs from our pollinator garden. Some varieties that we grow include Black Mission, Brown Turkey, and Calimyrna.


Our pollinator garden is in full summertime bloom. Here are a few samples of cut flowers and native flower species we grow in our garden. Flowers are a beautiful and easy way to promote beneficial insects in your garden.
